G'day there,

Just built a PC for gaming after not having one for years (iMac user)

Question: Is it still prudent from time to time to clean up the registry, and if so what are the best current programmes people use?

Cheers

P.S
I have a Win8 disk...use it or bin it? I'm only playing games on this puppy.

CCleaner is a good general clean up tool for Windows.

Ccleaner if I ever bother. Im on win 7 64 bit and I have only done it once to my memory.

Win 8 should be ok for gaming as it is similar to win 7, but some games may not like it. Also, you will likely have to reinstall everything in a short while if you use win 8 CP.
